“This is why we became a band in the first place, because we want everyone else to be in a band. None of us played these instruments in any other bands before we started this one, so, seriously, whatever stupid instrument you’re fucking around on, you are good enough to be in a band. And you should be in a fucking band. Don’t let anything get in your way."
“The distribution of labor is incredibly fucked up in the music scene, and women do a lot of the fucking manual labor when it comes to bands, and that’s mostly what this song is about, that you should be putting most of your energy towards your own creative projects. It’s nice to help your friends out, but you shouldn’t live vicariously through them. You should feel like it’s okay for the stage to be your fucking place.”
